Is it of Ulbricht that someone remarked that they need to get him a titanium tambourine? Think of the publicity shot with Ulbricht facing off against the Trailblazers backboard... (I bet he can leap that high.) Seeing Megan Fairchild will be a real treat.
I saw Melody Herrera dance a lovely Nutcracker and was equally good in adagio and allegro passages. She should be lovely in "The Leaves Are Fading".
I wish I could be there. I hope everyone from Portland will review it here

While this is preaching to the choir, if there is statistical evidence for this, how can arts education cuts be justified anywhere?

We haven't cancelled any performances for the upcoming season. In fact, we're doing four more shows next year than we did in 2008/09.
When you filled out your subscription form, did you indicate a first and second choice for performance days? It sounds like you might have been given the Saturday shows because the available seating in your section wasn't as good on Sundays - or else was sold out entirely.
I apologize if we switched your performance dates in error. If that's the case, please call our box office at 503.2.BALLET and we'll correct it right away.
